c-section incision pain?

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

c-section incision pain?

Postby tiredlullaby » Wed Jan 19, 2011 8:05 pm

How long does the incision hurt for? I am 3 weeks pp and only a couple spots of my incision are tender.. my husband said it looks good and like its healing but I'm afraid of infection.. is this normal?

I am 4 1/2 weeks pp with a c-section. At 3 weeks I was good to do everything around the house but my incision would start to feel sore on walks or if I spent too long shopping or something, and I definitely would not have put pressure on the incision. Today I walked probably 3/4 of a mile with no soreness, and if baby kicks me in the incision it doesn't hurt but I can still feel it is there. Hope that helps! You sound normal…at least, if I am normal :)

I am almost 8 wks PP right now...a couple weeks ago (maybe 3?) I was still sore after walking around the mall quite a bit one day...but it was the first time I'd really walked a good amount in one day (had also been to other stores besides the mall that day). This week, I still am just slightly sore when a 2yo twin gets on my belly.

Mine took a good couple weeks to start feeling better, but I got an infection in mine and ended up going on antibiotics.. :D

I honestly do not remember with my first baby how long pain lasted. I know it was longer than 2 months. At 3 months I tried to run on treadmill post partum and I could still feel pain. I hope it does not take a really long time to heal from c section. Are you taking any pain medicine? I hope you feel better soon.
